Indian FTR 1200 Is Still A Sexy Beast (Video)

But those good looks don't come cheap.

The Indian FTR 1200 landed at our office only a few weeks ago, and it has since made quite a splash. While our company owns objectively gorgeous bikes (think Triumph and Ducati Scramblers) the FTR has recently turned more heads. But a motorcycle has to go beyond good looks to peak our interest.

Luckily the FTR 1200 comes equipped with a sprightly 120 horsepower 1203cc V-Twin that produces 87 lb-ft of torque. Though the Indian 1200 does tip the scales at a relatively chunky 514lbs wet.

The Indian FTR 1200 S makes up for its weight with fully adjustable ZF suspension front and back. The 1200 S also runs cast wheels with Brembo brakes on both ends and dual 320mm discs up front. And, as with most modern bikes, hardware isn’t the FTR’s only party piece.

The FTR comes with a 4.3″ Ride Command display and rider aids such as lean sensitive stability control and ABS, traction control and wheelie control. It also comes standard with cruise control and ride modes Rain, Standard and Sport.

The FTR 1200 looks to be an all-around appealing bike, as it should be for $15,000. Though the bike is beginning to age, and competition like the new Sportster and MT-09 are hard to ignore, the FTR doesn’t lack appeal.

Details like the Akrapovic 2-1-2 exhaust and the stealthy grey engine covers tug at our heart strings.

It may not be the newest or most affordable bike in its class, but the Indian FTR 1200 S still gets us excited for every key turn. To see Alex’s recent full ride review, check out the link below.
